in reply to Being Forced to Fork with Nested Regular Expressions

I wrote Regexp::Approx - Use fuzzy regular expressions (and forgot to submit it to CPAN) to solve the re-entrant regex problem for my specific problem. I forked during INIT, kept some file handles pointing to and from the child and then would send all the re-entrancy-requiring work to the child.

You could pre-fork a number of children and then create more as needed. Alternatively, you could create a backtracking module for us and allow us to stop abusing regexes just to get at an already written engine.

[1nickt]: Then see Email::Sender:: Transport::SMTP
[Perl300]: secure in sense it should not cause any security concerns, create some loop holes.... I don't know much about it but don't want to cause any problem for security guys here
[Perl300]: I used sendmail before for a few times but read that is causes some security issues so trying something better/secure this time
[1nickt]: If you use a remote SMTP server there should be no local security issues. Your mail server probably wants an encrypted connection, so the message contents cannot be stolen.
[jedikaiti]: Greetings, Salutations, and all that Jazz
[Perl300]: ok, and for future if I want to use local box for something similar, then will Email::Sender:: Simple be a good choice?
[1nickt]: It's a framework that allows you to specify the Transport agent to whatever you want. You could even write your own.
